AceShowbiz - Stephen Jackson is married. The retired NBA player tied the knot with fiancee Tamara or better known as Tammy in a winter wonderland wedding where everything was set up in white. "Ask about us. We did dat. My [love] @supastar_tammy," the former athlete gushed as he shared on Instagram a picture with his new wife.
The bride looked stunning in her white dress with a plunging neckline and mermaid silhouette complete with a long cloud-like train while the groom was dapper in his suit from Miguel Wilson Collection. The ex-basketballer twinned with his groomsmen in the designer outfits. "We don't return Tux it's also a gift to my guys," he wrote.
The lavish ceremony took place at the Four Seasons hotel. Famous guests included hip-hop star 2 Chainz as well as fellow retired hoopers Al Harrington and Matt Barnes. The party was a weed fest, according to Barnes. "We smoked before and after," so he spilled the tea to TMZ. "We didn't really smoke during the wedding."
Stephen, who retired as a pro basketball player in 2015, popped the big question to girlfriend Tammy in April this year, a few days after celebrating his 43rd birthday. "Forever has a nice ring to it...," so Tammy penned on her own Instagram when celebrating her engagement.
The nuptials came six years after Stephen's wedding day disaster with ex Melissa "Imani" Showalter. He left his bride at the altar in 2015 due to dispute over a prenup.
According to Stephen in a podcast chat last year, he and then-fiancee agreed on the prenup months before the wedding but she kept holding off when he asked her to sign it.
"I'm like, 'Look bruh why I got to keep asking you about this prenup. It ain't like you don't know what's on it.'…This what I told her, 'What motives you on?!' … [she said] 'I ain't on nothing, I just ain't had time to sign it planning a wedding.' "
She allegedly still hadn't signed the papers on the wedding day, so he bailed. "I break down crying," he claimed. "Honest to God truth, I was hurt. I wanted to marry her, bruh. I break down crying for like twenty-thirty minutes. I'm hard down crying. I didn't think a woman would take me to this point over a piece of paper."
Imani reportedly cried to Jackson later, willing to sign the papers in order for the wedding to happen. He refused, however, pointing out that she could make a case in court to invalidate the agreement by claiming that she signed under the duress.
Imani was quick to fire back, accusing him of lying. "Please look at the date sent…. 2 weeks before the wedding (not the 3-4 months you lied about on live this morning)," she posted a "receipt" in the form of a letter sent to the ex-basketballer by his lawyer.
